David Gemmell Legend Awards for Fantasy

November 8th, 2008 • Posted in Book News |

For the first time next year, the David Gemmell Legend Award for Fantasy will be presented for the best fantasy novel of 2008.

Gemmell really was a legend, and his books and characters still command huge respect and admiration among readers.  I read Legend a long time ago, and I still have vivid memories of the book – its twists and turns, incredible character, and wonderful landscapes.

Fitting, then, that this new award honours him and his work.

There’s a list of nominess here. A long list, reflecting the many fine fantasy books published in 2008, and I’m proud and thrilled to see that FALLEN is there, among many other great books.

Voting opens December 26th.  So what else are you going to be doing on Boxing Day, otrher than feeling fat and bloated and watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang?
